  1. Clay bar. Re wash it and get all the wax/polish off, only wax and polish it once its clean.

  2. Car was covered in pollen for a few weeks. I used car cleaner followed by a cleaner/wax and the picture is the result. Not sure if the paint is damaged :/

  3. What kind of car is that? That could help you determine the make up of the paint. I say this because I had a guards red porsche that was “chalky” and dull looking. The paint though was a single stage point from the factory. So there was no “clear coat” to polish. Some paints are primer, base color That’s actually quite thin, and a really think clear cost that is what you polish and if you actually get down to the base color the paint jobs pretty well gone. A single stage paint is primer and a really thick coating of really hard “color”. When you polish it the color will transfer to the polishing wheel for example. This type of paint generally is used for solid colors without metallic flakes. If it’s a single stage you can polish Through the paint layer to the primer. Which looks like what may have happened here. It could also be dried polish. Which should never be left on your car for any length of time. Polishing is just making a bunch of smaller and smaller evenly distributed scratches. So compounds are an abrasive no difference than thick dust, sand paper, or a rock sliding across the surface. The only difference is the uniformity and depth of the scratches they produce. Fewer abs deeper make it more easily noticeable. And speaking of pollen. My red Porsche would look yellow orange some days while I was stationed in NC from the pollen. Sadly. I got nothing for you there except wash it Really well. Polish it with something like Meguires(Spelling?) Professional mirror glaze, then If it removes the white streaks. Wax it after. Really you should only need to wax it once clean, you can use a “cleaning wax” that breaks down from a polishers go more of a waxing media as it’s being used to smooth it out. But unless it’s staring to dull I wouldn‘t mess with it. If the paints damaged. There isn’t really any easy or cheap way to to correct it in a “right” way. Even if you paint it again it will need blended most likely. I don’t have any personal experience but have been told before single stage paints are really hard to correct because no 2 batches that are mixed are really the same but most would likely never be able to tell. but the way they cure doesn’t lend its self well to blending with out use of blending aids that essentially attempt to melt the new paint to any old paint at the edges. Hope this helps. Good luck.
